Test Studio is Telerik's QA solution for automating your manual testing. With Test Studio's standalone edition or Visual Studio plugin, you can rule out the possibility of unreliable test execution and UI recognition, non indicative test results and reports, dispersed test repository, low code coverage, and unaffordable learning curves. With no code, this tool provides an intuitive IDE to effortlessly create maintainable tests. If you are looking for a solution to automate testing for your web, desktop, or mobile application, you can now benefit from Test Studio's rich automation features.

"Learning Software Testing with Test Studio" will illustrate how to reliably automate test cases when it is time to relinquish manual testing habits. This book is all about less theory and more hands-on examples to present a complete manual and automated solution for your ASP .NET, WPF, Silverlight or iOS apps.

This book gets you started directly with automation in Test Studio by exploiting its recording powers through series of concrete test cases built around the equipped applications. Each chapter starts with a typical automation problem which is then approached using Test Studio specialized automation features.

You will learn how to create record and playback functional, performance, and load tests. Furthermore, we will see how to insert verification steps, logical constructs, convenient logging operations, and how to convert test scripts in order to implement keyword and data-driven architectures. To endow your tests with additional flexibility, each recorded automation feature will be approached from its coded perspective through the usage of the underlying ArtOfTest Test Studio automation library.

This book also illustrates how Test Studio can automate pre-conditions, test result inputting, and the capturing of system states during manual test case execution in order to keep the tester's attention focused on the important details.

Software testing is one of these things that most programmers acknowledge as a necessary evil. Few programmers, and perhaps especially the new ones, regard this as interesting or challenging. But if you have been programming for some time, you should be aware of how important it is to test. And to build testing in as an inherent part of the development process. To this ends, Test Studio offers a framework to minimise some of the manual steps. Chapter 1 explains how Test Studio is compatible with data driven architecture and functional test automation. But it can also enhance manual testing. However, the main thrust of the rest of the book is to go from manual testing to the automating of it. You can see how unit tests can be simply hooked up in Test Studio. The framework is like a debugger, but at a higher level. In similarity with a debugger, you can define what happens when a test breaks - does the framework continue or abort. How serious is a test failure? This is important, for it recognises that some unit tests could fail in benign ways. That a fail has a gradation of meanings. For manual testing, some people have written tests in Microsoft Excel workbooks. Test Studio can import these very easily. Or, if you define tests in Test Studio, there is the means to export to Excel format. There is also comprehensive reporting ability. And another type of testing. For performance. Where you want to measure certain quantities during a test run, or during a set of runs. The most common is simply the run time or the wall clock time. Care has also been taken to handle the important case of web server performance. Perhaps germane to your situation.
